Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. The farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. When you purchase a share, you typically receive a box of vegetables each week, but may also purchase additional products, such as bread or eggs.

Enter your zip code or city and state on the Local Harvest website to find a CSA near you.    

Find Fresh and Healthy Foods

Cooking healthy at home can be easy with our Nutrition Asset Map. Learn what nutrition resources are available in Winnebago County. This asset map includes listings for farmers markets, direct market producers, community gardens, meal sites, food pantries, and local food suppliers.

If eating out is more your style, check out the Fox Cities and Oshkosh Healthy Dining Guide created by Affinity Wellness and Preventative Services. The Healthy Dining Guide was developed as a resource for healthy dining options. For each participating restaurant you will find a list of their healthiest menu options and money-saving coupons.
